  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I will not be around. I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

Hi, I have a RF30 that needs a new acme thread screw for the depth stop. Anyone know the size? 1/2x? Bought my RF30 and it is all chewed up. Figured I could buy a threaded rod off eBay and turn the end down to fit the bottom nut/thumb twist part.
Thanks! 1486854611661-1316052986.jpg

Pick up whatever the bridgeport uses. Then use the simple spring loaded clamps that you just clip on.

I have a couple in my scrap box. One came off my RF-30 mill drill and the other came off my PM-932. If you want one it's yours. PM with your mailing address.
